Past Off-campus Exhibitions
Meg Cranston at Fitzroy Gallery, N.Y.
Fine Arts Chair Meg Cranston was featured in a two-person show, May 4-June 15 at Fitzroy Gallery.
"Meg Cranston’s work, rife with levity and wit, investigates the intersection between the individual and shared experience, and has previously included performance, sculpture, text and video, often referencing personal attributes and historical events.In this installation, comprised of paintings and collages, Cranston combines found imagery with abstract forms, layering real signifiers and content—-a bleached blonde, onion rings, fashion watches, Vasarely-esque Op-Art designs are all represented. Acknowledging the sociopolitical importance of the medium in early modernist art, Cranston’s semiotic use of color, texture, form, and typography are a nod at commercial advertising and the use of photomontage."
